David Brooks Wants a Strong President
Somehow Dave must have managed to outwit HAL because there is another vacuous column under his byline this morning. If I am reading his column right, David Brooks seems to be yearning for a strong man, a dictator. He wants the President with expanded powers.
We don’t need bigger government. We need more unified authority.
The democracy thing is too messy for Mr. Brooks. As is his wont he tries to legitimize his spurious analysis by quoting a scholar. Francis Fukuyama serves this function in this morning’s column. Also, what is it with NYT columnists and their yearning for dictators, Tom Friedman is always praising the authoritarian governments of China and Singapore. All I can say is be careful what you wish for.
